Team & Support Staff

Are you supported or frustrated?

As the leader of your vision and your company you are holding the bar for excellence!

You set the pace, the tone and the excitement for the mark your company is leaving on the world.

Team is critical for success, so for those of you who think you are going to do this alone I am here to let you know you are sadly mistaken.  Without team you may achieve results but they will be smaller and slower.

When to hire team is not when it is comfortable, it is when you know that it is the only way you are going to be able to make more money.  Whether that is a coach, an assistant, a bookkeeper – first you put them in place and then you are freed up to do what you do best.

So how do you choose who you are going to hire?

First you want to define the character of the person you are looking for.  What is their attitude like, how do they problem solve, how do they commit to and prioritize their work, what do they want in return?  Knowing your own style and matching here is critical.  You want someone with a very similar work ethic as yours.

Second you want to be very clear on what the skill sets are that you are looking for – which are critical to be in place and which you are willing to train.  I always prefer to train the right person than adjust for the skilled person.

Now it’s time to advertise and then interview.  Have fun and trust your intuition.  There are lots of great people out there just as eager to make a difference as you are!
